“It was Kindergarten when he was suspended 60 times. And the 50th time I was like ‘this has got to stop!'”

In a special holiday two-part series, Victoria Gordon shares her #NashvilleEduStory. Ms. Gordon is a daily presence in the halls of her youngest son’s school serving as its mom-in-residence. On this particular day, Mama Gordon was channeling Elf on the Shelf for the littles.

“I have one child in a zoned school, one in a charter school, and one out of county. I made three different choices for each of my kids. My youngest, Malik, was diagnosed with ADHD and Autism in pre-k. It was Kindergarten when he was suspended 60 times. And it was the 50th time I was like ‘this has got to stop!’ I couldn’t have my child like his father. I saw Malik going down a path early; headed toward being a statistic. He was in a classroom with more than 25 students, it was out of control and he was failing. So, I decided to teach him at home. We were going to do K-12! I had to pray about it.”

Tomorrow, Ms. Gordon shares the amazing thing she did after praying about her youngest son’s situation.
